I love yogurt and when Muller's first came I thought they were brilliant and still do!
I love the idea of having two different compartments, one with creamy yogurt in and the other with tasty toppings, yum!
One of my all-time favourites is Choco Crunch which is one of the newer flavours from the company with vanilla yogurt and milk chocolate coated biscuits...
This combination is fantastic as it's so tasty and satisfying that the 150g fills even me up, lol!
This Muller product comes under the 'Crunch Corner'' varieties, although this maker does loads of different types of desserts now so there's something for pretty much everyone :)
The full prices of these are around 52p each, but there was an offer on at Morrisons at the moment for only 25p each - better than half price, so we have stocked up on loads of different types.
Advertise as having no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives or artificial sweeteners and containing 23% of an adult's daily recommended calcium allowance, these can be a pretty healthy option apart from the 5.0g fat in each 100g.
The calories are 142 per 100g so not that healthy then when you study the foil lined pot cover!
With a whopping 16.5 g sugar per 100g this twin pot really isn't a good option for a dieter is it?!
For any allergists it contains milk, gluten, soya and may contain nut traces...
So to the taste it is very rich and strong with the vanilla flavour really coming through in the yogurt.
The consistency is smooth and thick and very creamy and quite yellowy in colour.
The little biscuits are crunchy and dry and sweet and the chocolate is tasty and quite thickly coated.
I think the two flavours really compliment each other and I love the soft and hard textures, yum!
This crunch corner snack smells gorgeous and natural and is well worth five full stars, a great addition to the moreish Muller family! :)
Since I have started cooking for myself more in my student days I am learning the differences between little things like stock cubes...
These Kallo Organic Chicken stock cubes are bouillon in texture rather than dry and crumbly. Pretty much all that means is that they are sticky in texture and they need dissolving a lot more than the Oxo types of cubes do.
Kallo make a few different flavours of this product, I've seen beef, vegetable and even a lo-salt version of these when we have bought this pack.
The price of this six pack is 88p from Morrisons.
There is a tip on the box that says to dissolve one cube with a little oil or butter and brush over the chicken before you roast; these are a really healthy way to pack a lot of flavour from a tiny product, believe me!
The box is a medium orange colour and the contents weigh 66g. Each 11g cube is really a bit more of a flat rectangle shape wrapped in an orange and silver foil cover to keep them fresh.
These cubes are made in the EU and are advertised as being 'the perfect way to enhance the flavours of your home prepared dishes'.
The instructions say to dissolve one stock cube in 500ml of boiling water, and it does need to be boiling and you need to stir it very vigorously or else it won't melt properly in the bottom of the jug!
The calories are 7 per 100ml of water, in other words 35 in each cube...
Kallo advise to add a cube to your water when cooking noodles and rice or pasta for extra flavour but I add it to cous cous and it really packs a meaty punch to a usually flavourless grain :)
The stock cubes themselves are very sticky and look an odd light brown colour; they smell like Bovril and are packed full of different herbs that rehydrate like turmeric, celery, parsley, thyme, rosemary.
The smell is lovely and it tastes really strong to say the concentrated cube starts off so small!
Five stars from me even though they are more expensive you get what you pay for!
Sometimes I come home for lunch from college and like something hot to eat, I think it's a throwback from being back at school and having hot meals at dinnertime, lol!
These Rustler's Hot Subs are on offer at only £1 at Morrisons at the moment so I thought I would try one as they are so easy to warm up in the microwave...
Sold in a solid plastic packet with a plastic sealed lid there is a life size picture of the sandwich on the front which looks really appetising and yummy!
The sandwich is packed in a microwave sleeve for a freshly baked taste and is called 'tangy meatballs with tomato and herb sauce' - the sauce comes separate in a little plastic sachet.
The sub keeps in the fridge until it is needed and is made up of 55% sub roll and 34% meatballs and 11% sauce so it is very moist and tasty, yum!
It weighs 155g and the meatballs are made of beef and pork and contains preservative too.
For people with allergies there is gluten, egg, mustard, and it may contain traces of sesame seed, soya and milk.
The sandwich is quite big and very filling and meaty and full of flavour, the bread was soft like sub rolls are.
You simply microwave it for about 2 minutes turning it half way through and them leave it for another 30 seconds and be careful as I nearly burnt my mouth on a very hot meatball :(
The cold sauce cools the meatballs down a bit which are very firm and chewy, but the sauce itself is very tangy and has quite a spicy kick.
I thought this was very good value for the money as it is enough for lunch on its own and there are 264 calories per 100g but the fat is high at 10.5g so not for people on a diet...
This is pretty good food I think and I would eat one again if it was on offer as it is cheaper than a spicy sandwich at college in the canteen. Four stars from me for Rustlers :)
My mum is on a mission to try lots of value products from the supermarkets she shops in as she says I am eating her out of house and home with my favourite foods, lol!
One of my favourite puddings is rice pudding as it is a yummy and milky dessert that can be eaten hot or cold at any time of the day or night :)
I have tried Morrisons value rice pudding and now this Sainsbury's one too and they are both good!
My mum says this 425g of Sainsbury's costs only 18p which is awesome, although you can tell the difference in quality a bit compared to Ambrosia or other brands...
The tin is in the Basics range so has a plain white label and says it has less rice in it but it still fills you up. This is nice both warmed through or cool straight from the tin!
Sainsbury's have a traffic light system on the label and everything is green for good for you except the sugars which are 19.8g per half a can so is amber in colour ...
The dessert is suitable for vegetarians and has 8% rice which doesn't seem a lot but it does fluff up loads when cooked in milk.
The rice grains are soft and quite chewy and not hard which I was glad about as some cheap rices can be...
There are 176 calories per half a can (recycle the can please!) and is low in fat with 1.9g and 0.3g of salt although I don't know why as you can't taste it?
There is 72% milk content and when you open the can there is about a quarter of tin of milk floating on the top which is very thin and sweet....
The pudding is gluten free but for allergy advice is obviously contains milk.
It can be gently heated on the hob and is lovely with a blob of jam added for extra flavour, or in the microwave, the instructions are given on the back of the label..
This rice pudding is made in the UK and I think very tasty for the money, I don't think I could give it five stars as it does seem watery due to all the extra milkiness, but it is worth four stars definitely as it is filling and yummy!
We have started trying more Value ranges at Morrisons and one of them is these Rich Tea Biscuits sold at only 33p for a double pack which is awesome value!
I love snacks and biscuits between meals to keep me going, especially through the day so I do eat a lot, lol!
The biscuits are sold in a plain white and yellow wrapper which shows it is Morrisons basic range of cheaper goods. The biscuits are suitable for vegetarians and only have 34 calories per one...
The fat content is 1.2g and the sugar is less at 1.1g and salt at 0.1g so they are not too bad for you in moderation.
They are only quite small compared to the branded Rich Tea at two and a half inches in diameter but they are nice and crunchy and fresh :)
They weigh 400g which again is great value for the money and they aren't much different than the more expensive ones except I would say not as sweet.
They are crispy when you bite into them and crumbly too so are really nice and tasty.
I wouldn't say they have as much flavour as branded Rich Tea but are really good for the money.
The biscuits contain gluten and sulphite and should be stored in an airtight container once opened as they can go stale quickly...
They are produced in the UK and the packaging is recyclable; the biscuits are wrapped in clear plastic inside the outer wrapper to keep them fresh too so they last longer than one long tube of them.
Each one has Rich Tea printed on it and holes throughout for cooking evenly and are light golden in colour and go lovely with a brew!
Four stars for me, they could be a bit sweeter but are very nice all the same :)
Bread is awesome!
Tasty and filling a carbohydrate I really enjoy in many different forms!
I like sliced bread both white and brown and seeded bread and bread cakes and pitta bread and tortillas and petits pains of course which are like mini crusty baguettes!
Iceland do a pack of four and they sell two packs for only one pound so we get them from there a lot and bake them fresh in the oven as they are part baked and then id any are spare I have them for my packed lunch the next day at college :)
The Iceland petits pains don't keep fresh fro very long once cooked as they tend to go really tough and stale.
They are ok for using the next day but no longer than that. But if you don't open them they keep for at least a few months in the really strong see-through packet they are sold in.
The best before date is printed down the side of the wrapper and they can be freezed so can save for a while that way too and can be cooked straight from frozen....
The pack has 300g in it between the four bread rolls and contains gluten for allergists and may contain nuts and sesame seeds also.
They are suitable for vegetarians and have 249 calories per 100g and 2.3g of fat so are healthy as they re low in fat.
They are cooked at gas 6 for about 8-10 minutes until golden and crispy on the outside but fluffy and light on the inside.
The bread tastes awesome warm with butter slathered on too, yum!
The outside of each petits pain is really crunchy and thick and crispy and the inside is spongy and really fresh and smells gorgeous :)
There are no hydrogenated fats and no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and no GM ingredients either but you are not to refreeze after defrosting it says on the pack.
These are brilliant value and the best we have bought and are great to store in case you run out of fresh bread. Best eaten with soup I give these petits pains five stars from Iceland!
I love snacky foods and confectionery - well I am a growing teenager, lol!
I grew up on Cadbury's so it is my favourite chocolate so when these cake bars came out we got some to try as they were on special offer at Morrisons for 99p which isn't a bad price for a product like this...
The packaging is really eye-catching with funky purple and bright orange swirls on it and a picture of an open Fudge bar which my flavour are, although the makers do limited edition double choc and jaffa cake flavours too.
Inside the plastic wrapper there is a clear tray with 5 individually wrapped bars of fudge cakes in them to protect them as they are really very soft...
The Special Edition bars are chocolate sponge on the bottom and a smooth creamy fudge on the top and then smothered in lovely Cadbury's milk chocolate, yum!
The fudge is quite soft not solid like a fudge finger and melts in the mouth. The sponge is medium brown and very soft and moist and there is quite a thick coating of sweet chocolate too.
I think these are a great treat and a nice snack and perfect for my college lunch box as well as nice with a cuppa at break-time :)
The fudge topping is 37% of the bar and the milk chocolate is 33% but these may contain trace of nuts for allergists...
The bars are made by manor Bakeries in the UK and contain 135 calories each which isn't too bad considering what they are.
Each one is about one inch wide by three inch long.
The fat content is 5.5g and salt is 0.23g but you can't taste it at all. The sugars are high at 16.1g too.
I really liked these and we would buy tem again if they were on special offer, they reminded me of Cadbury's Mini Rolls but with the extra creamy flavour of fudge!
Five stars for a tasty tea-time treat! :)
I love snacks!
From being little I have always loved cheesy Wotsits as well which are now advertised as being baked so now only 95 calories a bag which is cool :)
We recently bought a multi-pack of twelve at Morrisons half price at about £1.29 which is really good value and they are suitable for vegetarians and for coeliacs sufferers too...
The outside wrapper is a medium to dark blue so isn't very eye-catching; in fact it's a bit boring with only three cheesy Wotsits on show in the front.
The packaging says these are really cheesy flavour corn puffs and that's half the fun with these yummy snacks the curly shape and how puffed up and crunchy they are!
They are low in sugar with 2.5g of sugar in each pack and 5.8g of fat and 0.4g of salt although they don't taste salty with the strong cheese flavour at all I don't think.
The Wotsits melt in the mouth if you suck them or are really crispy and dry if you munch them and are great to nibble on and are so delicious!
There are no artificial colours as the colour is from natural paprika and there are no artificial flavours either.
There is 7% dried cheese used in each bag which makes them really tasty and moreish...
My favourite way of eating them is to nibble them a bit at a time and I often take them in my pack lunch to college if I feel like something savoury to snack with my sandwich :)
They last for ages if stored in a cool dry place unopened of course, the date on mine is not until next February....
Five stars from me for a great change from the usual crisps and healthier with less calories than some snacks made by Walkers the manufacturers of these!
I got these from Morrisons for 99p and it was 99p well spent!!
I love chocolate and especially Cadbury's as it is yummy and rich chocolate, yum!
The Snow Bites are sold in a Make a Wish wrapper which had a lovely Christmas picture on the front, the scene is very festive with lots of snow and Christmas colours...
The plastic wrapper says : Cadbury chocolate balls surrounded in a crispy white dusted shell' which is really icing sugar but the round balls look amazingly like mini confectionery snow balls.
In each half a bag there was 240 calories which is 12% of an adult's daily guideline to eat and 11g of fat - so not slimming then, lol!
Cadbury's are supporting the Make a Wish charity which I think is really cool, especially at this time of year too :)
The bites themselves are little circles in a crisp sugar shell which melts in the mouth if you suck on the sweet creaminess, the icing sugar again is really sweet and the contents have 33.1g sugar per half bag too...
For people with allergies they contain milk and may contain soya and are suitable for vegetarians.
The Snow Bites are really cute and reminded me of Cadbury's Mini Eggs except the bites are very messy so watch your clothes!
You can tell straight away when you open the pack that it is lovely Cadbury's by the yummy smell of their chocolate and it is really easy to eat a full pack if you are not careful as they only weigh 100g.
The bag has a best before date of next April so I think we will still be seeing these in the shops after Christmas even though they are very seasonal :)
Five stars from me, I think these are a great idea for this time of year and really a cute idea that I bet kids and adults alike love!
I love snack I really do especially sweet ones, although a peanut can be described as savoury too I think!
My mum is a member of Weight Watchers so buys a lot of their products and one of my favourites that I'm not supposed to touch is their Roasted Peanut bars...
There are five in a box for £2.25 and you can only buy them at meetings or online or in their magazine, which seems a bit silly to me as I think these would be really popular with people on different sorts of diets if you could buy them from supermarkets.
The box is brownish in colour and has pictures of the bars on the front and says: 'Delicious cereal and roasted peanut bars - packed with peanuts for a gorgeous treat!'
And they are gorgeous, really sweet with like a toffee coating that sticks the puffed rice and cereal oats and the nuts together into rectangle bars than come wrapped individually.
Each bar weighs 25g and has one and a half points on the diet plan and that is 104 calories for people who calorie count too with 0.7 g of saturated fat...
The best before date on this box is not until next March so they keep really well.
The snacks are really chewy and yummy and taste awesome with a hot drink I think!
These are suitable for vegetarians but not for nut allergists or people allergic to milk, soya, wheat, oats and barley. There may also be traces of sesame seeds and other nuts too.
There are 42% cereals in each snack and 16% roasted peanuts and the toffee sauce that makes these so chewy and sticky tastes really sugary if you have a sweet tooth :)
These are awesome if you like peanuts as they are full of flavour and good for you but not as fattening as a Snickers bar with the chocolate on it!
I enjoy these after a meal for a sweet treat so they are worth five stars although they are expensive for only five portions...
We use a lot of wipes in our house, any that come on the market my mum has to try, lol!
These Strongweave Flash wipes only cost 74p in Morrisons a few weeks ago on offer at half price, I think it was an introductory offer so that's why they were cheap...
The pack contains 60 wipes which Flash say = 30 large perforated wipes which are perfumed with lemon.
Procter & Gamble make these in the EU and say they are durable and clean more dirt than the next best selling wipe tested on kitchen dirt.
We use wipes for allsorts and the yellow plastic pack shows pictures of a sink in a bathroom and says they are suitable for kitchens too...
Because these are Strongweave they are said to clean up to 100% more dirt and are great on floors with laminate style coverings too :)
The pack has a resealable peel back lid and the wipes are white and about 6 inches big. The smell is very strong when you open them up and they are very wet as well.
The white wipes clean really well but are too moist so tend to wipe any dust about rather than sweeping it up in the weave pattern in the wipe...
They are very good on sinks, toilets and wiping grime off the bath after using as well as woodwork and UPVC doors, etc.
I don't know why they are perforated as it doesn't seem to make any difference though?
You need to keep away from children and away from eyes and rinse hands after use as these are strong. There is no need to wipe surfaces dry except if they come into contact with food.
Suitable for hard washable surfaces but you should test them first, and the wipes have an Active FlashGuard Barrier too.
I think these are too damp so I would give four stars as they were a good buy rather than the full five stars...
I love cheese as much as Wallace's Grommit does, lol!!
I love it in sandwiches and on spaghetti bolognaise and toasted and so on :)
It is great as a snack or part of a meal and it's even better if it is grated and ready done to save you messing about with the cheese grater...
This Cathedral City Lighter we bout from Morrisons for only £1.39 on offer for a ready made bag of 200g. This isn't as cheap as grating your own but is great for convenience.
The cheese comes in a resealable bag which is a really cool idea as it keeps it fresh in the ridge and from drying out or absorbing any stronger odours than may be in there.
The plastic pack is a dark orangey brown and has a cathedral logo on the front and says: 'grated mature yet mellow' to describe the flavour of the product.
There is 30% less fat which is why we buy it and it does say full taste despite being lower in fat and it really is!
The flavour is really rich and strong and smells lovely when you open the pack. The pieces are grated quite big and seem to keep moist because of this...
The pack says to eat within seven days of opening and is suitable for vegetarians.
It is made in the West Country and slowly matured to produce a smooth and well rounded flavour which it really does!
The calories are 314 per 100g with 27.9g of protein and 21.3 g of fat and has potato starch added as well.
I think this is the best cheese there is and it tastes awesome and proves something doesn't have to be full fat to deliver full taste! There is usually at least a month use by date on it as well which is good.
Five stars from me, I love it, love it, love it -it's the best out there!
I was bought some Thorntons Continentals as a treat last week along with some Thorntons mini caramel shortcakes, yum!
The Continental collection only cost £1.50 half price with any other purchase which is why I did so well, lol!
My chocolates came in a plastic bag that is brown and beige and has part fo the wrapper clear so you can see the goodies :)
My bag weighed 130g and had a best before date of April 10 on it so they do last a few months as long as they are stored in cool dry conditions...
The bag contained an assortment of milk, dark and white chocolates all with fillings in them, only the truffles with alcohol in them I didn't like the rest were lovely.
There were nuts, milk and soya in for people with allergies and they are suitable for vegetarians and are a gluten free recipe too.
The bag contained:
Alpini - a hazelnut and almond praline
Caramel Truffle - smooth caramel truffle
Vienesse truffle - light mousse in milk chocolate sugar sprinkled case (my favourite!)
Sicilian Lemon mouse - zesty lemon puree mixed with double cream
Chocolat Riche - silky smooth caramel and chocolate truffle
Cappuccino - coffee mousse set in white chocolate
Champagne truffle - strong tasting with fresh cream and chocolate
Mousse au chocolat - fluffy chocolate mousse with white and dark chocolate
Catalana - creamy caramel mousse with crunchy honeycomb pieces
Vanilla truffle - smooth dark truffle with white decoration finish
The mixture is awesome and I love most of them!
They normally cost about £3 and even at that they are worth is for the high quality confectionery. The Continentals are really rich and luxurious and very filling for a sweet tooth like mine!
Very sugary and sweet and the chocolate cases are really thick and smooth and I love the different flavours together.
All the ingredients are fresh and the cream ones are really tasty and I love the variety :)
Five stars from me for some of my favourite treats, yay!
One of the things my mum has started buying me that's cheaper is chocolate because I eat so much of it and she's read good reviews on Sainsbury's basics milk chocolate on here.
The bar is only 27p for 100g of chocolate and you would think for that price it would be horrible and cheap but you would be wrong!
When she bought me my first bar to use me as a guinea pig, lol, I expected it to taste nasty like some really waxy chocolate does but this confectionery is really nice :)
No it's better than nice it's yummy!
Sold in a plain white plastic wrapper with an orange strip across the top and the nutritional info on the front this says 'No fancy packaging, just a good bar od chocolate and they are right!
For a quarter of a bar there are 126 calories and 6.5g of fat so not healthy but it is confectionery isn't it so you wouldn't expect it to be.
There are 15.3g total sugars and trace amount of salt and it is suitable for vegetarians which is good...
Allergy advice is it contains milk and soya and is not suitable for nut or gluten allergy sufferers either.
The smooth chocolate chunks themselves are quite plain and a bit darker in Colour than Cadbury's but it smells nice and sweet.
The chucks are thinner than Dairy Milk too but the shape doesn't make any difference to me...
The taste is creamy and sweet and really tasty, the chocolate is full of flavour and has a lovely aftertaste which isn't sickly unless you eat too much!
This stuff is a bargain and I think it deserves four stars as it is a really yummy flavour and I would eat this regularly and cook with it too :)
I was bought these as a treat but I did ask how much they cost for my review and they are £1.79 for 12 mini caramel shortcakes.
Made in Derbyshire by Thorntons these are awesome versions of Millionaire's Shortbread my Grannie makes!
These are my favourite Thorntons treat as they are really yummy and rich in flavour!
They come packaged in a plastic wrapper with a gorgeous picture of the chocolate covered caramel shortcakes on the front and a best before date which is a few weeks in advance at 28th Dec 09.
The wrapper keeps them nice and fresh and inside each small square is in a golden plastic compartment which stopped them getting damaged...
The squares are quite solid and have three layers with the buttery biscuit base which is crumbly and a caramel middle which tastes like Thorntons toffee, yum!
The top layer is quite thick Thorntons chocolate which is solid and milk chocolate.
These are lovely with a hot drink, I even dip mine in hot chocolate but everyone else thinks that's gross, lol! I love the fact the three flavours mingle and melt in together and are coated in a hot drink, slurp! ;)
The calories are 86 per one or 492 per 100g which looks about the same as normal chocolate.
Per one there is 6.6g of sugar and 5.6g of fat so these aren't good for you, but what confectionery is?
Once opened they should be put in an n airtight container as the shortcake can go stale quickly...
For allergies there is milk, soya, gluten, wheat and oats and may contain nut traces.
The toffee sauce is awesome and my favourite bit, it is pretty squidgy and not solid and tastes fantastic and sweet and creamy like the chocolate does as well.
For a delicious goody try them...five stars from me and I hope I get some more soon! :)
